Provide a way for users to bypass the Etcher system drive protection layer

See original GitHub issue

There might be advanced users that really know what they’re doing.

We could either:

  • Document the use of an environment variable, like ETCHER_ADVANCED_MODE=1. Advanced users will feel confortable doing so, and the feature will be nicely isolated from newbies.
  • Provide a checkbox in the drive selector modal saying something like “Advanced usage” with a big warning that will make system drives appear on the modal.

I found this thread looking for details on this setting, and while “Allow writing system drive [DANGEROUS]” or other text for this setting would be more correct, this text, as-is, is too hilarious to ever change!!

“Unsafe mode” is mysterious, but the “Dangerous” makes it delicious as well!

It’s like a red button with a label next to it saying “DO NOT PRESS THIS BUTTON.”
